Using Classic App Lighting Automation that is structured like this
Turn on deck lights (which happen to be a Lutron Caseta Switch) on when motion is detected by deck motion sensor and turn off 1 minute after motion stops. Works fine. Add one more variable and that is only if deck light switch (again Lutron Caseta switch) is OFF. This is meant to preclude automation from running if I manually turn the light switch to on. Problem is, when I add this last condition, the lights turn on when motion is detected and stay on indefinitely. Smartthings has been working to fix this since Jan 2019 and cannot. How can this be? It is a simple automation that should work.
I tried this with other Lutron Caseta switch and motion sensor combinations in my house and it fails to work properly as well.
Deleted lighting automation and recreated it and it does the same thing. It seems like it gets confused at some point in that it sees the light switch was turned on (by the automation itself after motion was sensed) and then doesnt complete the automation step to turn it off after one minute. I kept explaining that to ST support but they cannot find a resolution. I am bonkers mad thinking this should simply work or at least be easy to fix?
